The Dog Days of Southern Accents

Southern Accents mission is to rescue, restore, protect, and document architectural elements of historical significance. What you may not know about Southern Accents, is that we also have been known to rescue elements of the furry (and feathered) kind! Search our blog and you will find several entries about Chance and Bobby, SA owners Garlan and Heather Gudger’s rescue dogs. Last fall they added a new member to the family when they took in a stray kitten, Pumpkin!

Pumpkin was a stray kitten rescued by Heather and her boys last fall. Pumpkin, who thinks she is a dog, has become a permanent member of the Gudger household.

Visit our showroom and you will discover that we are a “pet friendly” business. Quite often, our lab mix Chance, will meet and welcome you at the front door. We have a grassy area in our back alley and recently installed pet litter bags to accommodate our four legged friends who may need to “take a break” during their shopping trip! Our affection for animals extends well past our owners rescue pets. Last spring we nursed two baby bunnies back to health after their nest was destroyed by a storm. We keep a bag of bird food handy to help out the momma birds who nest each spring above our back door.

Chance was only a few weeks old when he was rescued from the parking lot of our wood showroom. You can read Chance’s story in our blog post from July 12, 2012.

All pet food will be donated to Crossing Paths, a no kill rescue organization working to unite dogs that have been rescued from shelters with forever homes.

This picture of Lisa's daughter Isabella and her new lab puppy Maura captures the incredible bound that can form between an owner and their pet. Maura shares her home with Lisa's three other dogs, one of which is a rescued collie mix named Max.
